I thought he had the "option" to void his contract in '14?



He does.

We are victims of horrible local coverage.

Worth noting that while he's taking a pay cut this year, he's taking a huge hit next year. Under his old contract he was scheduled to make $7.7 million ($6.7 base + $1 roster bonus) next season. However, with his base salary reduced to $1 million and all signing bonuses already paid, the most he can make under the current contract is $2 million next year (and that's assuming the roster bonus is carried over into the new deal).

So even if it is an option, I think he could easily make more than $2 million on the open market.

He has a 2 million dollar roster bonus for 2014 in the new deal.

Ahh, didn't notice that before. Thanks, so $4 million.

That right there tells me it doesn't "auto-void." Why give a player a roster bonus if there's no chance he can get it? It's not like we get cap relief from it or something.

EDIT: Or maybe just $3 million, since the $2 million roster bonus likely takes the place of the $1 bonus on the old deal.

I already considered LT a priority.

This reeks of an under the table agreement for him to opt out next year and renegotiate a team friendly deal.

Still, he'll be 34 then, this is a major risk for him to take. I guess team loyalty happens sometimes?

It's really a three year extension, he's got a roster bonus in 2014 worth 2 million and will make around 10 million total over the next two seasons.
